    Hello,

    I have completed my LLB in Oct. 2016. I am now interning at an international law firm in Dubai. I want to do my LPC in September 2017. However, I cannot decide between applying for either BPP (Holborn) or University of Law (Bloomsbury). I do not have a training contract and my main aim is to go to a Uni that will prepare me most in obtaining one. I know that in order for me to get a training contract, my grades have to be outstanding. However, I still need opportunities to network. Which university would provide me more networking opportunities?

    I know that:
    BPP allows students to study their lectures online -- does University of Law also have this option?
    BPP has closed book exams, while UoL has opened books -- does this mean UoL exams will be harder?
    UoL timetable for full time students is 2x/week -- what is the timetable for full time students for BPP?
    How are the facilities?
    Also, what is the difference between the University of Law campus in Bloomsbury versus Moorgate? Do they offer the same electives?

    Please advise as I have to apply for my LPC by the end of the week!

    Pretty similar in terms of networking opportunities. They both have good network with firms, and if you are based in London look for events outside of the university anyway (open days/workshops etc).

    Thank you.. is it true that BPP is more business oriented classes?
    Also, does UoL Bloomsbury have different courses than UoL Moorgate?
